Hey all! So I had been riding my mare to start getting her back in shape, but she has been out of commission for about a month now due to lameness. She is now sound and ready to start work again, but I think she's still basically starting from scratch as far as fitness goes.
I would like to enter a hunter pace Memorial Day weekend to begin to expose her to off-the farm shows. I've never done one, but was told they can be as long as 7 miles long. My mare is out 24/7 in a field with gentle hills. Would it be possible to get her in shape to complete this safely by then? I won't be jumping any obstacles, just along for the ride :) I know the basics of bringing a horse back into work, but I'm not great with the timing of it. Thanks!
